The reunion didn't come as organic as hoped for. In the summer, Big Boi took to Twitter to share that he was to appear on "Pink Matter" and T.I.'s "Sorry" but didn't because "'Dre didn't want an OutKast Record Coming out on anybody else LP."
Shortly after, rumors of an official Outkast break-up started swirling. But such wasn't the case, fortunately. Big Boi told Billboard "an OutKast feature on a project that's not mine or his is not what we wanted to do right now."
On December, Big Boi posted a photo on Tumblr of his upcoming verse for the "channel ORANGE" track, saying "Dropping a verse on this Frank Ocean 'Pink Matter' #vladr."
Big Boi plans to deliver a remix to T.I.'s "Trouble Man" track.
